A 19-minute short film included on 'Eve's Bayou' DVD.
Kasi (pronounced like Casey) Lemmons is married to Vondie Curtis-Hall. Kasi wrote and directed the fine movie, 'Eve's bayou', and also made this short. Even though it is 19 minutes long, 3 to 4 minutes are consumed by opening and closing credits, so the actual story is told in about 15 minutes. Dr. Hugo (Vondie Curtis-Hall) makes house calls, and all the young ladies swoon as they see him passing by. This short film is a story of how he can get into big trouble if he isn't careful! How can you rate a 15-minute short? Difficult, because it is so focused, so I gave it "5".
SPOILERS -- read no further, please. Dr. Hugo makes a house call, the very pretty young woman asks him to "give her a little something" to make her pains go away. He gives her "a little something" by way of a sexual favor, but the husband stops him as he is walking out. Seems the young husband is clueless to the doctor, but tells him about pain "taking a pee", and a discharge. The doctor has him drop his pants, grimaces at what he sees, gives him a prescription for VD. Husband says "maybe that's what is making my wife sick?" Doctor Hugo starts to feel sympathy pains too!! What has he gotten himself into??
